The new Godin Radium-X is a chambered electric with hints of acoustic tones. This Canadian-made guitar allows you to get some new tones by combining parts of each style of guitar.

Godin Radium-X

Godin’s Radium-X is a hybrid design based around a chambered T-style electric and this gives the design some subtle acoustic properties. The basic design includes a chambered mahogany body that is capped with a carved swamp ash top. This is partnered with a mahogany neck that has a 25.5” scale length rosewood fretboard with 22 medium frets and a Graphtech nut.

It comes fitted with an LR-Baggs X-Bridge tremolo with six built-in HEX saddle transducers. The Radium-X is available in either Natural or Rustic Burst finishes.

Pickup Combination

The Radium-X also has an interesting pickup configuration which consists of a Seymour Duncan Jazz SH-2 in the neck position and a Bare Knuckle Boot Camp True Grit Zebra in the bridge position. Plus, it also has an under saddle piezo along with a built-in preamp.  This means that the Radium-X really has a wide range of guitar tones, that straddle some great electric tones through to faux acoustic-like tones. Players can also blend between the passive magnetic pickups and the piezo system.

Finally, dual outputs mean that the X-Bridge piezo and magnetic pickup outputs can be sent to different signal paths. All of this makes for a very versatile instrument, which could be perfect for working musicians. The guitar offers a lot for your money and also something a bit different. It certainly isn’t the first guitar design to combine piezo and magnetic pickups, however, I think it is a good one.

    Seems like the perfect guitar for someone that can’t decide if they should buy a Les Paul, Tele or Music Man!
